How to correctly wash hands: 

  1. Wet hands with warm or cold water and apply an adequate amount of soap to form a lather

2. Rub hand palm to palm to create enough lather to cover both hands. Scrub your whole hand.

3. Cusp back of both hands and then interlock fingers to clean in between. Don’t be vigorous

4. Next, rub both thumbs in a rotational manner and clean under fingernails.

5. Rinse hands thoroughly under clean, running water to remove the foam

6. Dry hands and apply a moisturising cream to prevent over-drying hands.

How to effectively sanitize:

1.Squeeze container gently and apply a dime-sized amount to the palm of your hands.
